H00567                      Disease                                

Caveolinopathies, including:
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) 1C;
Rippling muscle disease (RMD);
Idiopathic hyperCKemia;
Distal myopathy with decreased caveolin 3;
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
Caveolinopathies are a group of muscle diseases and can lead to a broad spectrum of clinical phenotypes. The same mutation could lead to heterogeneous clinical phenotypes and muscle histopathological changes. They are usually inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. Recently, an autosomal recessive inheritance was considered. The clinical findings that may suggest the diagnosis of a caveolinopathy are: onset usually in the first two decades, progressive, proximal, symmetrical muscle weakness, positive Gowers sign, calf hypertrophy, myalgia, cramps, and/or stiffness after exercise, muscle hyperirritability, etc.
